Holiday Classes

ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN!

Our classes allow the kids the freedom to actively learn, while regularly immersing themselves in nature in the heart of Brooklyn. Using the seasons, plants, and animals as inspiration, and provided with simple tools and found and recycled materials, the kids are invited to lead the way climbing, creating, singing, digging, painting, and connecting with nature as the backdrop! In the true nature of a forest school, we embrace the weather and meet year round in the sun, rain, and snow! The benefits of time spent in nature for children's health, creativity, confidence, and cognitive, social, and emotional growth are innumerable. We offer a small group size and a low student to teacher ratio, allowing us to move through the park with ease and ensuring all the children are safe and heard as we explore.

Classes are drop-off in Prospect Park, with three program options:

  • Sparrows: 2-3 years old

  • Robins: Entering Pre-K or K in September 2019

  • Hawks: Entering 1st grade - Entering 4th grade in September 2019
